Thread Name: Acoustic Bass Guitar Strings
Subject: RE: Tech: Acoustic Bass Guitar Strings
I had considered getting an acoustic bass, but in the Riversiders we have 5 instruments, 6 string, 12 string, mandolin, banjo and bass I thought I would be drowned out, and so stick to the Fender. There's no point getting an acoustic bass if you need to amplify it. What's others peoples experience of acoustic bass in a bluegrassy/folky lineup? Sometimes you do feel a bit awkward bringing an amp into a folk club, but you've got no choice if that's your instrument (and I'm not getting a double bass).

Better think twice about bringing my amp to the Black Horse again then.......
